in the same tonal scale. if you look at cpac, i want to talk about the straw poll a little bit. rand paul won with 25% of the vote. marco rubio, at 23. rick santorum at 8 and chris christie at 7. i've maintained, and you're a national political reporter. the enthusiasm in and around rand paul is a coalition that is more dynamic than almost anything else the gop has. what are the implications of that in the next couple of years? especially as you have folks like jeb bush and chris christie. trying to move the country to more moderate and progressive in the lower-case "p" sense of the word. >> in covering ron paul, who of course rand paul is going to inherit the energy and enthusiasm from ron paul, you saw the biggest crowds, the most diverse crowds and the youngest crowds. that's what rand paul is going to capitalize on. should he run and it looks like he will run. i think over the last months and weeks you've seen obviously a split between the establishment and the tea party folks. rubio can't decide which one he is. rand paul, however, is very, i think solid and comfortable with his brand an

but we don't talk about it because cbo didn't mention it in the score. that's the great trick of paul ryan to recognize if you only talk about budget deficit, where does your budget put the deficit 20, 30 years from now, the amount of things you sneak in under that cloak that you can never put into the conversation in a serious way in normal times is tremendous. that's the central political innovation of his career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effect. they try to oversimplify everything in this, but is there some break through in this point of republicans saying you know what, the debt isn't such a serious problem? >> there's no break through. i think it is a big deal that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is alway

. does it divide the party? and where do they wind up? >> i can imagine there's a republican rand paul that would be for gay marriage before 2016, but not many mainstream republicans coming out. i think we're still a few years away from that. it's demographic. a lot of old folks in the republican party that comprise the worker bee base of the gop,thy do the phone calls, they do the envelopes. they are culturally very conservative. very traditional and they're not going to come around to gay marriage at least not in the very near future it may happen down the road, i think you're going to find serious puckbash among the conservative base of the party. who by the way provide a lot of votes to republicans. on this issue. keep in mind, a lot of republicans vote for the party because of the cultural issues, not the fiscal issues. it's not because of carried interest and capital gains tax breaks they vote for the gop. >> carried interest. >> now we get to talk about carried interest. >> jonathan makes a good point. nbc/"wall street journal" poll, i believe in december 2012, they asked do you

. to be fair though, mr. limbaugh and malkin are conservative commentators. then there's senator rand paul from kentucky. today, he spoke in washington, d.c. and on his way there, he apparently stopped off at the hispanic voter stereotype shop. >> republicans have been losing both respect and votes of a group of people who already identify with many of our beliefs and family and faith and conservative values. hispanics should be a sizable part of the republican base, that should resinate with latinos. >> should they? why do you think that? you know, if you actually look at the data, more than half of all hispanics think gay people should be allowed to marry, so your stereotypes about what latino voters think, hey, turns out they're wrong. also, they're stereotypes. also, there's this. >> there's a hilarious episode on seinfeld, any seinfeld fans? where jerry admits he loves asian women, but says is it racist to like a certain race? >> don't, don't, don't. >> so, it is with trepidation that i'd like to express my admiration for the romance of the culture. >> back to the drawing board, reince pri
. for example, parroting the line that paul ryan is killing grandma, or falling for the nonsense that sequestration is going to lead to bedlam at the airport. or eventually mr. ed on the dinner plate. this is scary stuff but it's wrong. remember what is really going on here, my friends. if we only use a little map here and we in the media did our jobs here. no one is cutting anything. this still leads us with criminals more in debt a decade from now. it's true. the government is still growing no, matter what we do now. you don't hear that, of course, because it's not flashy or exciting or bloody. it doesn't sound exciting that paul ryan is slowing the pace of government. but paul ryan forcing millions to go on food stamps or pushing granny off a cliff -- i just heard this one. he is actually killing thousands of seniors. that is wrong. so i know. that the club. there is nothing wrong with having a point of view but everything wrong not bringing up all the point of view. it takes two parties to tango. so you can't just blame one. or one side is stubborn or jeopardizes a deal but t

much about in the election last year, paul ryan keeps the savings that obamacare would generate, but eliminates the benefits. the revenues that come from some of the taxes on medical devices and other things, they keep the revenue that comes from the affordable care act, but they want to cut the benefits. so thouis is really about an ideology. the wealthiest americans have essentially captured the republican caucus. and what we see in the ryan budgity or in anything that has to do with the affordable care act, anything that has to do with the smart investments that we know we need to get the economy growing again, those are off the table. big tax cuts for the wealthiest americans that has to be made up by somebody and we know who that somebody is. >> thank you for coming in. there is no huge surprise that the ryan budget overwhelmingly passed in the house or that it failed in in the senate, but three senators voting against it, rand paul, ted cruz, mike lee. that's a new thing, tea partiers saying i'm even more conservative than paul ryan. is that the message? >> yeah. that is t
-term budget deficit and the house is poised to take up congressman paul ryan's budget tomorrow. joining me right now republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee. i want to start by showing everybody the new poll numbers. both sides have taken a hit when it comes to the budget hit. 67% disapprove of the way the president has dealt with the budget. 79% disapprove of the republicans on this. people at home think it's just absolutely ridiculous. will those numbers push both sides to find a compromise before it's too late, before the numbers continue to go down any further? >> you. thomas, i think you're right. they do want to see a resolution to this and what they're wanting to see a resolution to first is the out of control spending. get this out of control spending under control. and that's what we hear from both sides of the aisle, from our constituents, regardless of whether they're democrat, independent, republican, libertarian, you name it. they say, washington spends too much. you don't have a revenue problem. you have a spending problem. get it all under control. that is wha

a piece you have up about paul ryan. you say it's paul ryan's disappearing act. his stock could not have shot up much higher when he was chosen as mitt romney's running mate and now out of the spotlight. >> this story quotes dan senor. for someone who was the nominee, as the story says, the "it" boy, younger face of the republican party, paul ryan has perhaps deliberately been out of the national plilt conversation because he has a busy day job. not only is he chairman of the budget committee with a huge job but been a wing man to speaker boehner even though not a formal member of the top part of membership. ryan has consulted on everything that matters. and has become the tea party whisperer for leadership and the person conservatives trust and he tries to market leadership packages to the conservatives. >> i guess disappearing so far, he hasn't been out nationally as much as he was but not disappearing behind the scenes. >> tuesday night he was told he would not be vice president and wednesday morning, john boehner called him up and said i need you in the middle of the washington. ther
it was during the goldwater days. you're laying the groundwork for somebody like rand paul to win the iowa caucus us. chairman priebus made all the right recommendations. i would have gone further and said challenge your electorate. challenge your base. open up those primaries to independents. then you'll get republican candidates incentive to run to the center instead of to the right of rand paul. if those candidates win out you'll see democrats do very well in the midterms and four years. >> real quick guys, element number four of the cpac straw poll it puts rand paul in at 25%. marco rubio at 23%. so we have a leader there. our power panel, perry bacon, ben labolt, susan del percio. thank you. >>> university of central florida's main campus in orlando will reopen and classes will resume at noon eastern time. the campus was shut down, hundreds of students were evacuated after a body, weapons and explosives were found in a dorm room. authorities say the male found in this room appears to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. a handgun and explosive devices were found in that room

paul ryan's budget plan on a 59-40 vote. ryan says it would have put his countrien othe right path. >> we owe the country a balanced budget. it's a reasonable plan. grows the economy. balancing the budget is not just a sta stats tis particular call exercise. creates nor jobs. helps people keep more of their hard earned money when the other side is offering even more spending increases and tax increases. more borrowing. we are worlds apart. >> democratic proposals do not balance the budget. the fbi is investigating how on earth a man was able to pose as a pilot and gain access airways flight in philadelphia. police say the man had on an air france uniform and also an i.d. then he ended up in the jump seat right behind the airlines captain. he was caught when he failed to show his real credentials. the airline says that no passengers were ever in danger. >> that was a bizarre story. >> um-huh. >> the lie breafer congress has added 25 new songs, including this 1960's hit. ♪ come on, baby, ♪ let's do the twist. ♪ come on, baby ♪ let's do the twist. >> they said it became the ex
are fine. the idea is america to folks like rand paul who said we need a brand new political party. a new gop. the thing is this debate will be happening over the next couple years and we won't find out where the republican party is for a while. democrats were just in this position after losing the 2004 election. they had very big debates, particularly over the iraq war in 2005, 2006. then everything was settled. we'll see where republicans are come 2015 and 2016. >> mark murray, good to see you. let's bring in radio talk show host michael smerconish who is also with msnbc and jonathan from american cross roads. thank you for being with me. jonathan, let me start with you. this is what rnc chair reince priebus said. >> focus groups describe our party as narrow minded, out of touch and, quote, stuffy old men. the perception that we're the party of the rich, unfortunately continues to grow. that's frustrating. because we care about every voter. >> what does this plan do? what does plan do to change those perceptions at least? >> i think it is a very, very good start. a very good framework o
